Frankly, Amnesty, I just don't give a damn......

----Frankly, I was offended by it," Cheney said in the videotaped interview. "For Amnesty International to suggest that somehow the United States is a violator of human rights, I frankly just don't take them seriously."-----

Torture, what torture?

What alternate universe does he live in? Does he only read the quarterly reports from Halliburton? Did he miss all of the Abu Ghraib photos? Is he blind???

Well, I guess I shouldn't think that he WOULD take the leading International Human Rights Agency in the world "seriously." After all, he helped start a brutal war for profit. Human rights? What human rights? It's all about the money, honey. If you're not mean and following the green, then get lost. You offend Dick's sensibilities.

A bunch of anti-war human rights defending punks, that what Amnesty International is anyway, right, Cheney? After all, if it ain't making a PROFIT, it has no credibility in your world...
Why not just put the whole pansy wimpy bunch of them in ABU Ghraib or Guantanamo? That'll give them a better perspective on human rights and the USA, right Dick?

The same VP who insisted on an Iraqi - 9-11 connection even though Osama bin Laden hated Saddam Hussein, wanted to conduct an Afghanistan-like insurgency against him, and only broke with the Saudi government/ruling family AFTER they turned down his request and allowed US troops to station in Saudi Arabia.

And on it goes. Cheney also has access to the worst photos and videos from Abu Ghraib, those that chilled out the Senate Intel committee but have not been released to the public.


Don't forget to thank Cheney and Enron, btw, for our national energy policy.

"Cheney also has access to the worst photos and videos from Abu Ghraib, those that chilled out the Senate Intel committee but have not been released to the public."

That is such a frightening statement. His arrogant response to Amnesty's report, especially in light of those photos, is also frightening. It supports the cry's that this war truly is all about the money and the corporations.

That both our pres and VP could respond to Amnesty and the Red Cross in such a rude and undiplomatic manner shows that they feel that they have succedded. They no longer care about world opinion.

It was very difficult for me to get a handle on the initial whispers that 911 was an "inside" job. How could your mind wrap around the thought that in America, your government would kill you, that it would kill thousands of your fellow citizens, in order to bring about thier view of an American Empire.
You know what? I think they did it. Follow the money. The trail leads to them. Those people jumping out of the twin towers were a golden egg for Bush and Co. They have to be stopped.

With all due respect, I think they hijacked 9-11. But yes, they turned it into a huge profit for the war machine. $300 billion by some accounts--and for what?

Osama bin Laden is real enough--created in part by the madness we support in Saudi Arabia and our previous misadventures in Afghanistan when Reagan was supporting the mujihadeem.

More like Dr. Frankenstein and his monster. We're guilty of helping to create people like Osama bin Laden and followers, due to our support for despotic regimes.
